My computer is making...

My computer is making a buzzing sound. Does this mean it is updating (light is flashing next to power button) or is something the matter with it? Help!!

Technician's Assistant: What computer or device has sound issues?

Lenovo computer Proview. Only got several months ago.

Technician's Assistant: What Lenovo model do you have? And the Operating System (OS)?

I DON I don't know! Where does it tell me?

Technician's Assistant: The Computer Technician will be able to walk you through that. How long has this been going on with your computer? What have you tried so far?

Tried turning on and off. Still hear buzzing sound.

This sound with the light flashing just means the computer is working harder than normal. It could be updating or running some processes in the background, or just working on whatever you are doing at the moment. There is no need to be alarmed, this is normal.

Thank you. ***** correct that the charge for this information was $5.00? I do not want a free trial at this time. Please let me know.

I am not sure of the charges as I do not deal with that department. I simply answer the questions sent to me. But you will not be signed up for the membership unless you specifically ask to be.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
